Often overlooked as being amateurish or unassuming because of crude recording quality or a naive vocal delivery, outsider musicians always seem to fall into a category of “lo-fi” or “D.I.Y”. To some extent this labeling is correct, but what sets outsider musicians apart from the rest is the strength of their songwriting. It is through their innocent and unclouded approach that creativity flows. In short; they are expressing themselves freely without insider* influences.
